Default Neck Blank

Mark typically roughs out neck blanks in batches of 8 or 10 at a time. Currently, he is all out of 14-fret length neck blanks, so he started making some more.

The first photo shows 20-year old 3 X 4 X 30 Honduran Mahogany neck blanks and a 12-fret version of the final result.



After cleaning them up and milling the blanks square, neck profile patterns is drawn on to them. Next step is off to the band saw....



Eight 14-fret Honduran Mahogany neck blanks are now completed. The two outbound slots to either side of the truss rod slot are to accommodate 1/8 x 3/8 x 18 carbon fiber reinforcement rods.
